Food, decorations, cake, drinks, party bags, presents... there are always so many things to plan and prepare for a party. There are also many ways to make it easier to prepare for a party.
One simple way is a permanent party supplies box!
Buy yourself a tub and stock it with all of the regular supplies you always need; cups; plates; cutlery; serviettes; table cloth; rubbish bags; balloon pump; etc.
Whether you prefer disposable items or washable plastics, it's a great way to keep your party supplies handy and ready to pick up and go.
Another great way to keep a party box is to share it with a group of friends. Make it a communal party supplies box! Each time a friend hosts a party they simply use the party box, replenish supplies and keep it until the next host needs it.
Stock it with permanent, washable plastics/picnic ware - sharing the cost among the group - and you save money; time spent buying more disposables; and, the environment.
